Specialty Museum Museum
Step into scenes from one of the world's most read and best loved children's books at The Museum of The Little Prince, a museum and park dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic. Stroll around the small village, designed to look like the illustrations of France pored over endlessly by readers of "The Little Prince." Learn about the author's childhood, and the inspirations which went into the magical tale, as you go through the museum, seeing a recreation of his childhood bedroom and the room in which he wrote the famous story. Rest up in the onsite cafe, serving an array of French dishes with a distinctly Japanese twist. Put The Museum of The Little Prince into our Hakone-machi itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • A museum for cutesy-ness and selling gifts in the shop instead of learning about the story and the man. I hoped it would be like the tintin museum in Bruxelles  more »

  • A place where the builder tried to reproduce all characters, scenario and things. It is a good place to explore with kids, but I expect more...perhaps the Little Prince is unique to me and none can reproduce...
  • Cute little museum with great architecture that makes you feel like you're in France!
  • This museum is so fantastic! I love Le Petit Prince so this museum taught me more about the author and I got some great photo opportunities. I definitely suggest going here! I went to Hakone just to see this museum and it was worth the day trip!
  • If it was more about the Little Prince than it is about the author it would be a 5 stars!!!
  • Doesn't look like a shabby museum but unless you understand Japanese, it will be a waste of time
